6 HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, AUGUST 20, 2010 RoyWllllams Marion Barber Tony Romo G0in' back to CalL.. On August 14 th, the Dallas Cowboys returned to Oxnard California after spending the first half of training camp in San Antonio. After their loss to the Raiders, Coach Phillips decided to have the first two practices without pads and without contact. Defense was sharp, but the offense was sloppy. Offensive worries have been a constant concern for the Cowboys from Dez Bryant's ankle injury to Marc Colombo being carted off the field on Monday with a knee injury.The offense has failed to score a touchdown in the first two preseason games and the O-llne has allowed 11 sacks. The Cowboys played in the Hall of Fame game in early August and started training camp earlier than other teams. Perhaps fatigue has set in? Everything is a mental thing right now,' Patrick Crayton said. "Physically, you're body Is beat up. So, really, you've got to keep telling your body, 'Push it, push it, push it, let's go'When you get tired, that's when you really determlne how mentally focused you can stay."Wlth a little less than four weeks left before the Cowboys open up against theWashing- ton Redskins, It will be a tough task for the offensive coaches to get passed the injuries and get the offense on track.

Amid controversy,, C 00nci votes to rename City Hall several minutes of deliberation, he voted to change the name. Rodriguez told the Herald Tuesday that while he did vote for naming the building after, his predec6ssor w.hile sitting on the Council last year, he. has heard from hundreds of local citizens who were not happy with the name designation. "I felt the responsibility to listen to my constituents and I have heard over and Over again that the building should not have been named after Mr. Smith," May6r Rodriguez said. "I was elected to represent the citizens of Lordsburg and that is why I voted to change the name." Furthermore, Rodriguez said the change will not cost the City of Lordsburg much, but will sim- ply involve removing the letters from the exterior of the building and moving items from the lobby, all of which will be done by City crews. Continued from Page 1 the topic pending further public input when Council member Eddie Esquivel made the motion to change the name to Lordsburg City Hall and remove Arthur Clark Smith's name and to re- move the photographs and plaques from the lobby and place them in a more appropriate loca- tion, such as the Chamber of Com- merce or the Museum. City of Lordsburg employee and new City Councilor Elias Ruiz Jr. seconded the motion, forc- ing the Council to vote on the issue. Saucedo and Councilor Ernest Gallegos vehemently voted against the change. Mayor Pro-Tem Arredondo abstained from the issue, without voicing a reason for doing so. Councilman Alex DeLaGarza was not in atten- dance at last Thursday's meeting. With a 2-2 tie on the motion on the floor, Mayor Rodriguez was forced to break the tie.
